Presidentís Message


Hi Ladies,

Welcome to our website, Iím so glad you found us. Westside Newcomers Club (WNC) was started 22 years ago by four ladies and has evolved to over 500 members. If you are like most of us that moved to Las Vegas with little or no family or friends to greet us, you are in the right place.

We are a well organized Club with a common goal, to provide a safe, interesting and fun venue where we can make new BFFs. We are also a non-profit, non-political and non-philanthropic organization.

Check out our calendar of events and the Special Interest Groups. You will be amazed at the number of activities that take place every month. And every time you participate in a new activity you will meet a whole new group of ladies and your circle of friends will grow. We also encourage our members to think about whether they have a special skill or talent they would like to share as an activity. Thatís how our calendar keeps growing.

Our members come from all walks of life with different stories to tell. Itís a strange phenomenon that once you participate in one activity and then another, your life takes on a whole new meaning. You might realize that, now itís your turn to enjoy and experience something youíve always wanted to do.

There is a General Meeting followed by a luncheon and program once a month, at  different venues each month. Because the attendance is usually higher than most restaurants can accommodate due to the programs (authors, celebs, local officials, etc.) many are held in the ballrooms of our beautiful casinos.

If you are interested in hearing first-hand about our club and meeting some of our board members, plan on attending our New Member Coffee.  It's held on the first Wednesday of every month, at 9:15 a.m., at the Grace in the Desert Episcopal Church, in the community room at 2022 Spring Gate Lane, Las Vegas, 89134.   You wonít be disappointed. 

As a member, you will receive a newsletter every month that reflects the current monthís activities. To participate in any activity, you need only to pick up the phone and make a reservation. And if you wish to become involved in the operation of WNC, we always welcome another pair of hands, new visions and innovative thinking.  You'll find an application on our "Meetings" page.

My personal motto is, enjoy the journey, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
